Subject: Transparency – section on website
I’d suggest that Campaign contributions be easily accessible on our website. We need to walk the talk. jim

ONE community without neighborhood boundary lines
Jim has never run a campaign because he has always been un-opposed. Is he worried about 2015? Is he wanting to expose citizens who may want the other not-so-smart members off the council?
Jim, Jim. There already is a website. There are rules for campaign contributions and disclosures. Most people would think somebody in politics would already know that! Since you don’t, here’s the link: http://www.elections.il.gov/campaigndisclosure/candidatesearch.aspx
A better suggestions: How about listing on the website how much the city spends on studies by outside vendors? How about the entire city checkbook be made available on-line? Too much transparency?
